    I am so sorry to read about Mr. Lorenz's passing. I first met him when I started working with the bank in 1996 and he was building homes over on Slemmons St. He would come in weekly and we would always visit at length. He had some great stories to tell and could tell them like no other. Such a privilege to get to know this man. Prayers for his family in the days ahead.
